This is the worst home entertainment device I've ever owned
on September 3, 2016
This is the worst home entertainment device I've ever owned. I had it for about 1.5 years. The user interface was terrible. The remote control was terrible. When playing videos on Hulu if I used the forward or reverse keys the player would enter an endless loop of repeating the same 1 minute of video endlessly (it would skip back about a minute every minute). This also happened if I "resumed" playing. I own 5 other hardware devices in my home that also play Hulu and none of them have this issue. Basically this was a piece of junk. I accidentally hit the rewind remote button while watching a movie in bed tonight and thus lost the ability to finish watching the movie in bed because it would not infinitely play the same 1 minute over and over. I finally got so annoyed with this junk player that I did something I have never, ever done before - I smashed it to pieces with a hammer and after the last year plus of solid frustration from this device it was a very rewarding feeling.
After owning this I will never buy another Sony entertainment device. They may have built good equipment years ago, but clearly they suck at building good quality devices now.
